Annotation:  The thermoneutral zone of the homeothermic organism on the basis of the thermophysical approach is estimated. Analytical formulas for the lower and upper critical temperatures limiting the thermoneutral zone of a body with a flat, cylindrical and spherical shape are obtained. The established theoretical dependences of the critical temperatures on the characteristics of the homeothermic organism qualitatively agreed to the observed experimental properties and regularities of the thermoneutral zone. Numerical estimates of the thermoneutral zone for a human are quantitatively consistent with the experimental data
